Review: Just finished watching the final episode of TMTETS, bitter sweet ending. Kim Soo Hyun was so cute and innocent when he acted silly and all. The beginning (first episode particularly) was a bit dull, but just bare with it so that you wouldn't miss out the back-story. Good news is, episode 2 and onwards were getting more and more interesting with great acting from that two kids who played young Hwon and young Yeon. I cried so hard watching episode 5!!! For those who are looking forward to see Jung Il Woo and Kim Soo Hyun, just hang in there until the 6th episode.

Review: To be honest, I was very disappointed by how the relationship between the leads unfolded throughout the series as I really wanted Kang So Ra to be with Jin Yoo Jin. But looking at the bright side, there were few of my most favorite scenes like when the Kirin students held some sort of welcoming party for the underage idols moving into the hostel, and the part when they performed "B Class Life" on the stage, simply entertaining! I felt like I wanna see more of their hidden talents as the episodes grew, considering most of them are still new and fresh in the entertainment industry, except Jin Woon (2 AM) and Ji Yeon (T-ara).

Fashion King (时尚王) 패션왕 / Fashion Wang
Fashion King (时尚王)
Ratings: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Review: At last! I managed to wrap up all 20 episodes of "Fashion King" with my spare time *phew* I gotta admit that I was thrilled at the very beginning, as I was anticipated to see Yoo Ah In portraying more of his charisma and charm in this series, following his more prominent role in "Sungkyunkwan Scandal". I waited episode by episode, week by week, only to content myself with more and more disappointments. The storyline has grown to be so dragging, and I eventually lost my passion until the last four episodes, sparkles reignited and faded with a Hollywood-like ending.

Ratings: ★★★★★★★★★☆

Review: This is hilarious!!! I laughed so hard watching most of the episodes, especially episode 1 to 9. The story later preceded with sadness and anxiety which made me tear as hard as I laughed. Tae Yong and Park Ha, there was such a sweetly intriguing romance between two of them. Episode 19 touched me so deep that I couldn't help breaking down, drowning myself in a pool of tears... Eventually, all the mysteries unraveled with a heartfelt fairytale ending.

Review: I really liked the 70's retro style at the beginning of this drama, where every moment was captured so beautifully with the setting of fairy-tale like background and romantic tunes. It took me quite a while to get use to the roles of Jang Geun Suk and Yoona though, from the retro 70's to the modern 21st century and to fall in love with the cute couple all over again. Every love scene was simply so sweet and enjoyable until complications and sacrifice came across the father and son, mother and daughter... Vacillating situation and it remained uncertain until the last episodes, and ultimately, the lovely story concluded with a sweet and warming ending.

Queen In Hyun's Man (仁显王后的 男人)
Ratings: ★★★★★★★★★☆

Review: Thank you, guys! For recommending this to me ;) I actually took a month off from K-drama, before I was able to open up my heart for another time-travel romance comedy like "Rooftop Prince" again. First, I was not emotionally ready or prepared. Second, both of them just share too much similarities. I struggled a little when checking out the first episode, but fortunately, the storyline did not fail to impress me or should I say it was abso-freaking-lutely addictive, BEST time-travel-love-story ever!!! I got myself completely drawn into "Queen In Hyun's Man" as soon as I started the second episode. Yoo In Na was cute and I really like her true to heart acting.

To the Beautiful You (致美丽的你)
Ratings: ★★★★★★★★★☆

Review: If you loved watching the Taiwanese version of "Hanazakarino Kimitachihe" aka "花样少男少女" or the Japanese version of "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" aka "花ざかりの君たちへ", then I reckon you would never wanna miss out on the Korean version, "To the Beautiful You"! Lee Hyun Woo is such an innocent-looking sweetheart, don't you think? ♥ By pure chance, I noticed that Cha Eun Kyul kinda reminds me of You're Beautiful's Jeremy (Lee Hong Ki). If only Jae Hee and Eun Kyul were destined to be together, then the story would be perfect! It broke my heart every time to see him in tears...

Review: Yet another time-travel romance between two people from modern and ancient times, their love transcends time and space...

Arang and the Magistrate (阿娘使道传)
Arang and the Magistrate (阿娘使道传)
Ratings: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Review: Finally, something fresh and fascinating that has nothing to do with time-travel during this time-travel-fever phase. The unspeakable love between Arang (a ghost-turned human / human-turned ghost) and the magistrate. I agreed that it was a pretty decent ancient rom-com overall. There were times I was very engaged with the storyline especially the beginning. I wanted them to be attracted and falling in love with each other so much, also, Dol Swe (the magistrate Eun Oh's servant) and Bang Wool (the special gifted shaman) never failed to make me burst out laughing when they were together. 20 episodes may be a little draggy in my opinion, but I'm glad I managed to hang in there right til the end.

May Queen
Ratings: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Review: I was unaware of its length, as in the irregular large number of episodes when I first started this drama. It's a melodrama and thus, get ready with boxes of tissues and be prepared to shed lots and of lots of tears. Kim Yoo Jung, the 13 year-old who played young Yeon Woo / Shaman Wol reached my heart again with her touching, heartfelt acting as young Hae Joo. Furthermore, I'm a fan of Kim Jae Won, always and forever. I am definitely, absolutely staying until the very last episode of "May Queen".

Review: It was like watching a bunch of teen idols "showing off" their talents, not up to Glee's, the American musical comedy-drama series standards but still very much entertaining. I admire IU's talents at this very young age of her. She caught my attention when she first picked up the guitar and sang with her angelic voice. Wooyoung and her made such a cute couple together. Also, for the first time, I had no clue of whom the lead actress gonna end up with until the very last episode.

Review: The best K-drama in 2011 I've ever watched so far with extraordinarily addictive and interesting storyline!!! I got hooked up as soon as I started the first episode. The story of the unconditional and irrevocable love between the characters was like a magnet that would gravitate a strong force causing you to spend all day or even nights chasing the episodes, one after another, and eventually came to a conclusion that the ending was not something you expected it to be.

I personally liked Kim Jae Wook's acting in "Mary Stayed Out All Night" and that was the main and only reason that kept me going with the drama.

    Erm, do you prefer series with good looking guys or girls? "49 Days" is the new Korean drama which I'm currently addicted to, pretty fresh and interesting storyline =)

  20. What a wonderful blog, Sister! Your blog is really helpful. My wife is a huge fan of K-Dorama. Sometimes it's hard for me to choose which K-Dorama to buy her for suprise, because she doesn't like sad and bad ending stories. And I'm not a fan myself. But when I saw your blog, it's really inspiring. I decided to take DREAM HIGH.
    Thanks a lot! See ya...

    You've made a good choice! "Dream High" is a very inspiring musical teen drama, hopefully your wifey would like and enjoy it, see yas!

  22. I recently started watching my first K-Drama, which is Boys Over Flowers. When I'm done with that, I'm plan to watch Coffee Prince, You're Beautiful, Princess Hours, and most of the shows on your list. Based on this, can you suggest any other K-Dramas that I might like?

    ReplyDelete
  23. chrissytd:
    Hi Chrissy, are you a fan of Yoon Eun Hye? You might like the currently airing Kdrama that she's starring in, Lie To Me. My some other recommendation would be My Princess and Playful Kiss (the blonde hair guy from Boys Over Flower is the lead).

    ReplyDelete
  24. I read about Playful Kiss when researching other K-Dramas, and I planned on watching it anyway. These shows seem way better than American shows which it is what I am used to and I just decided to find something new, I might spend my whole summer break watching. What are some good K-Dramas from 2009?

    Hi Chrissy, the only two K-dramas I've watch during that time were Boys Over Flowers and You're Beautiful (my most favorite).

    Feel free to check out these popular K-dramas fom 2009 and tell me how would you like them.
    Shining Inheritance (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Shining_Inheritance)
    Cinderella Man (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Cinderella_Man)
    Queen Seon Deok (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Queen_Seon_Duk)
    City Hall (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/City_Hall)
    East of Eden (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/East_of_Eden)

    tracy:
    Hey Tracy, there are two episodes left for "Lie To Me". The drama is expected to finish in next week, making them 16 episodes all together =)

    I'll share more K-dramas from time to time, so don't worry. "Heartstrings / You've Fallen For Me" is the one that I've been waiting so long, starring Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye who didn't end up being together in "You're Beautiful".

  27. Wow, my wife loves "Dream High" sooo... much. I gave her the DVD's last week as a surprise. Thank's Sis, your blog is really helpful. Btw, I'm planning to buy her "Playful Kiss" too. And...what do you think of "200 Pounds Beauty"? Do you think it's good?

  34. hey dear..i've installed the qvod player..then,,how to download the drama?i'm confused...

    ReplyDelete
  35. KPSisMe:
    Hi there. First you'd have to click on the episode links, one by one. Make sure you access them using IE (Internet Explorer) instead of Firefox or any other browsers as it might not invoke the QVOD Player.

    After clicked, a new page will open with a video loading, wait a while and check if the video is loading in the QVOD Player as well, under the "Net Tasks" tab.

    Once the video beginning to load, you may close the IE window and let it continue downloading in the player. You don't have to wait for the video to be downloaded completely, just click play and watch whenever you like.

    Hope this would help you, cheers!

  44. i don't know why "My girlfriend is a gumiho" was not included in the list. that series just about topped all the series you posted above. I hate mischievous kiss and mary stayed out all night. No offense but some of the series you posted, with the exception of "my princess" and "prosecutor princess" are not that much to see, really. The only good point they have is a good looking actor. just my few cents... sorry.. =)

  45. Hi! I only watched Coffee Prince when it was aired here in our country. btw, i suggest you watch "Say you love me" starring Kim Rae Won, also "Wonderful life". Wonderful life is one of the best Kdrama ive ever watched :) Im currently watching "Single dad in love". I try to watch Kdrama that's not so popular :D hope you'll like it. I suggest you watch Wonderful Life first :)

    I understand that there are quite a lot of people who heart this drama. I tried to watch it myself but didn't really like it somehow. That is why it was not listed in the first place.

    But due to overwhelming requests, I finally included "Secret Garden" and "My Girlfriend is a Nine Tailed Fox" on my list, cheers ;)

    I was told that "Coffee Prince" was nice but still haven't really watch it until now, as I'm so hooked up with "Heartstrings" at the moment. "Wonderful Life" was one of the most touching K-drama I've ever watched, but that was already few years back~ Thanks for your recommendations anyway =)

    Totally agreed with you! I love "Heartstrings", partially because my favorite actor / singer taking the lead role in it, and to witness the love chemistry between Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye being reignited once again...

    Have you watch "You're Beautiful"? I wanted the couple to be together so much, but the ending really disappointed me a lot finding her to be with another guy instead.

  84. I LOVE Secret Garden. Probably my all time favorite but maybe I'm biased because I swear my husband is exactly like Kim Joo Won. Lol. With that being said, I actually really wasn't too impressed until after I watched maybe five episodes. Seriously. So give it another try! It starts slow but gets SOOO good!

    Fantasy Couple
    Personal Preference
    Boys Over Flowers

  89. Another good show from 2009 is Midas. There'a bunch of great korean shows on Netflix right now. I got into them and can't stop! I'm picking up a lot of common korean words from the subtitles.

    Lie to me, City Hunter, Midas... now I'm watching Bad Guy, but it's not very good compared to the rest.

    Who knew Korean cinema is so entertaining! The best part about these shows is the innocence. I'm so tired of Nip/Tuck, Weeds, etc., where they just wring the life out of the characters, everyone screws everyone else, everyone is a murderer or rapist or drug-dealer. Korean shows are much more optimistic and innocent.

    On the other hand, Korean shows are very materialistic. Even when the main female characters don't care about money, the boyfriend is always a billionaire, which doesn't hurt!

  94. i just started watching korean dramas religiously again since fullhouse days. personal preference, heartstrings and 49 days were the ones i had finished within the past week. So far, i got hooked at 49days the most. the ending was actually good enough for me although i'm pretty sure most people were disappointed. nonetheless, i loved how they stuck with less-cheesy taste until the end but still able to make it feel complete. a totally must watch. :)

    Yeah, the ending kinda surprised and disappointed me cause I was really hoping to see Han Kang and Ji Hyun being together.
    I'd check out "That Fool" when I have the time, as I'm currently quite occupied with my personal life, thanks ;)

    Smiling Pasta? Pardon me but isn't that a Taiwanese drama? I've already watched that years ago =)

    You're most welcome *hugs* and thank you too!

    I love them both. Whenever I get bored with those American/British/Canadian series, I'll just come back to watch Hong Kong/Taiwanese/Korean series and vice versa.

    It seems like I wasn't the only one who couldn't finish the first episode *high 5*
    I can see quite a few of you guys like "Sungkyunkwan Scandal", maybe I should give it a try too, thanks =D

    Hi Happy, you're most welcome. Apparently you've already watched most of the good ones on the list, that's great!
    Perhaps you'd like to watch "My Princess" first, then "Lie To Me", and "Protect the Boss" last.

    BOF was good but not perfectly good, so I couldn't really give it a 10. Anyways, "Goong/Princess Hours" is from 2009, where my list focuses mainly on year 2010 and 2011.
    But I may consider putting it on the list once I have finish watching it, thanks!

    True, I was one of those who were left with disappointment =.="

    Hey, thanks for your comment and recommendation! I haven't really watched "Goong/Princess Hour" until now though many of you keep on suggesting me to watch it.
    It's hard to keep up with those good old K-dramas, when there are so many new ones being released from time to time. But I'll make sure it stays on top of my "watching list" :-)

  98. Thank you for this Recommendations ,
    when I found " My Girlfriend is a gumiho " in the list, I knew it is a list I can Trust
    as an Egyptian ,
    Generally , I like Japanese drama more than Korean when it comes to Actors/Actresses and Plot
    the only thing I found better in Korea is the [ Beautiful Picture ] , I think Koreans have More advanced Technology and better Directors [ May be d2 their stronger ties with American Hollywood ]

    But [My GF is Gumiho] was the exception , it is the best COCKTAIL asian drama I have ever seen
    Fantasy , romance , Horror , comedy ,.....
    the only missing thing was a good ending that is as creative as the whole plot

    [My GF is gumiho] has the best Soundtrack I have ever heard in any asian or non-asian drama

    Each episode leaves you on fire waiting for the next

    one of the best [First Episodes] of any asian drama which hooks you from the first to last second

    and after reading your comments about [ Secret Garden ] and how it better than [ My GF is Gumiho ] I downloaded the first episode expecting a masterpiece
    but I am really disappointed and can't download even the second episode with such boring first one !!!!
    Even if it is better as a whole , but how a good drama considered great with such boring start !!!

    I need recommendations for asian drama with [BEST FIRST EPISODE]
    :)

    THANK YOU

  99. I don't think your synopsis for Dream High is correct :S

    Hye Mi starts out as the most unpopular girl at Kirin, and it doesn't seem like she becomes the MOST popular girl there. and theres no mention of Sam Dong wanting to own a stock farm.

    Hey there, I do like K-dramas with good looking guys, but they must have at least some talent in acting. If you're a fan of Kang Ji Hwan, you may wanna give "Coffee House" a shot. And thanks for your compliments too! ^^

  122. I'm writing a korean Drama! I'm not very good at english. But the drama I'm writing is based on Boys Over Flowers, Heartstrings, and Playful Kiss, Most of it is me and my mind (and also City Hunter) I'm Korean so I don't need subs. When I'm done writing I'm sending it to SM Entertainment so they can read it and probably make it into a Drama! So Excited. Sorry if I'm not making sense. But Thank You for the recomendations! ^_^

    With very few exceptions, Korean TV is now the best in the world. I cried watching 49 days (and laughed more than I thought I would) but the most painful show had to be "Worlds Within" the writer and director just want to hurt us I think?¿? I was physically and emotionally hurt for a week, and IM A GUY!! YA! Thanks for letting me Bla bla bla ^_^

  142. Hi, Thank you - I guess the list is quite helpful as a guideline. I liked 'Personal preferences' very much but i think 'Boys over Flowers' is too much to take. Can Korean girls be that stupid to give away their pride like that. It's too much to take and shouldn't be in your list. By the way I am a Asian watching Korean dramas for the 1st time.

Finished it in 3 days and started 49 Days right away. Not sure how, but I've watched the whole thang in almost 2 days... it was so darn addictive I couldn't do anything else of my life besides watching it!

  161. Currently watching flower boy ramyun shop too it so addictive I love it it's freaking hilarious I love everyones characters. Every episode never failed to crack me up I was dying hard of laughing I look like pretty crazy laughing by myself n sometimes whenever my mom comes to my room to check me out she was like r u ok lol! It's a must watch I'm telling u won't regret it. It's a romantic/comedy if ur looking something entertainment this is the one! Now I can't wait episode 11 that's the only thing I hate when still on air it's takes forever. Lie to me, girlfriend is a gumiho, great love, secret garden, protect the boss, personal preferences, playful kiss, prosecutor princess, my fair lady, oh my lady, couple or trouble, these r some of the good romantic/comedy that I love love and already watch. If u want something dramatic but romantic at the same time u should try shining inheritance, scent of a woman, spring waltz, what planet are you from?, Stairway to heaven, are my favorite when it comes to real drama u will have mix emotion u might smile n cry at the same time u so will need a box of tissues if u will watch them ehhehe... The best thing is I love the plot of the story they're amazing! U will definitely touch though some of them that I mentioned are not 2010-2011 movies but I must say this r like the best kdrama at all times! If love some action/drama/romance: city hunter is one of them plus lee min ho is on this drama he really did good on this one I'm telling u he's totally different characters compare to his BOF drama u will like it n for sure will fall in love with him more like I did Ahahah lol! poseidon Is great action but lack of romance n u might get confuse about the plot of the story but if u try to understand it carefully u will get it coz I found out a lot of ppl got confused about this drama but thank god me I did n I love all the twist they put n the reasons also that I did watch is choi Siwon was there So it's worth it for me, Midas is pretty good too u it will teach u some good lessons a man who dreamed to become rich or reach his goal I should say but he didn't expect that hes life will turn upside down giving up his love n choose the life that he's been dreaming well it's interesting so if u want something like that it's a good one, though I mentioned secret garden already but I just love the story plot of this drama it's a mix of Romantic/action telenovela. U will love hyun bin there! With his characters u will enjoy every episode since I'm a binnies fans too as well I did watch my lovely Kim Sam soon, worlds within something like that but I enjoyed watching it plus he's lead role so what else can I say just love it haha! If u like some romantic/musical... Heartstrings(you've fallen for me) you're beautiful and Mary stayed out all night are one on my bucket list to watch u will love listening they're songs n also will melt ur heart away bout the love story that lies behind the music. Anyways I believe that's all I can say if u like any horror movie or Korean movies just let me know! Thanks christina ur blog is very helpful n I love it that I also had a chance to express how I feel to all those telenovelas that I watched. More power to u and god bless!

    Yssa from LA California ^_^

  162. City Hunter is by far the BEST Korean drama I've watched. The ending was a disappointment because it was rather confusing, but of coarse Lee Min Ho makes up for that. They had to wrap up the filming because of major flooding in Korea. But I just can't stop wondering what the ending might have been. You're Beautiful was one of my favourites too, but Playful Kiss was really disappointing. The girl is rather annoying and Kim Hyun Joong only had ONE expression. I can't believe I bought Playful Kiss over My GF is a Gumiho.

    ReplyDelete
  163. i watch Secret GArden and scent of a woman and it makes me laugh and cry at the same time. City hunter is the best drama/action i watched but the ending is a little bit confusing. hope there will be part 2, i love Lee Min Ho in this drama. 49 days will make you cry but there are episode that are boring. i plan to watch protect the boss. i hope i will enjoy it. thanks. i like your blog.

  167. city hunter is a must-watch. it is an action/romance drama with some funny moments too..and Lee min ho is just so HOT! this series is so addicting. another drama which i'd say one of the best is Scent of a Woman. OMG, i cried a lot in this series but it is so worth watching, besides Lee Dong Wook's hotness, the actors did so well, this drama will take you on a roller coaster of emotions. i was just so moved with it. i kind of had withdrawal symptoms for a few days after i finished watching it. these 2 dramas are highly recommended! :)

  172. Hi, you have done a great job.
    I watched a movie 2 years ago, i didn't remember its name.
    It was wonderful.
    The actor was a school teacher, her wife (married because of family pressure) was student in that school, and she doesn't liked her husband.

    Can you guess the name of movie? Actually i want to download that movie, so i need a name.
    Thankyou.

    1. Hi, Yugal. Thanks and sorry that I really have no idea what's the name of that movie you mentioned here. Perhaps you can try searching for the character names, if you still remember, cheers!

    1. I'm so glad to hear that. So I assume you're creating a fan blog? or just mainly about the k-dramas that you've watched? Anyways, good job! And how did you like "My Fair Lady"?

    1. "49 Days" was simply awesome! I would recommend you to watch "Flower Boy Ramyun Shop" too... and if you're a huge fan of Minho, why not just give "City Hunter" a go? ^^v

  180. 2011 drama I really love are :

    Princess man ( very good drama, a unique and you can't feel bored in every episode. I start love park shi hoo. he is a very good actor).

    Protect the boss ( it's very funny. the story is very good and the lead actress slowly shine in every episode. The ending is great).

    heartstring (The music here is very beautiful, I kinda attract traditional instrument. competing the traditional and modern is very fascinating).

    Lie to me ( In the beginning up to few episode I hook up already, because I really love romantic drama).

    princess prosecutor ( I love the actress so as the actor, what I amaze here, actress are very fashionable . All her get ups and shoes, I envy). The ending is great also.

    secret garden ( I am avid fan of Ha ji won for long time now, because she never dissappointed me in her acting, she is a very versatile actress, she can do what character she want to. Comedy, action, drama & horror).

    can you hear my heart ( It has good ending too, a lighthearted drama, and never dissappointed the ending.)

    A thousand days promise ( If you want to watch heavy drama, this is the right one. Kim rae won is the best after all, I notice Soo Ae, in 9 end and 2 outs, she is very funny on that drama. I admire her on this drama, she is very talented one. She pulled it all the way).

    I did not continue to watch:

    vampire prosecutor
    the greatest love
    bad guy
    paradise ranch
    personal taste ( I never expect, Because I love son ye jin).

    can't lose ( I love also choi ji woo, maybe the blend of her partner not really click?)
